The Nameless One is the boss that you’re going to face during the Desert Temple level in Minecraft Dungeons. Unlike some of the tougher enemies in the game like the Enderman and Redstone Golem, The Nameless One cannot simply run past. You’ll have to defeat him if you’re going to beat the level.
In this guide, we’ll run you through how to beat The Nameless One in Minecraft Dungeons, including the best artifacts to equip and what attacks to watch out for.
How to Beat the Nameless One in Minecraft Dungeon
Before you start the Desert Temple level, we’d advise making sure you change your Artifact loadout to the following:
- Fireworks Arrow
- Boots of Swiftness
- Death Cap Mushroom
The Fireworks Arrow will help to deal with multiple enemies at once, or alternatively can be shot at The Nameless One to deal significant ranged damage.
Boots of Swiftness are crucial for this fight, as they can help you flee from The Nameless One’s attacks and any skeletons that it spawns.
Finally, the Death Cap Mushroom briefly increases the amount of damage you deal. We can use this when fighting The Nameless One to take advantage of moments when its defenses are down and get this fight finished off faster.
With your Artifacts sorted out, you’re ready to take on The Nameless One.
The Nameless One has three different attacks it’ll use. The first is a ranged fireball attack that’ll see it flinging green spheres at you. Avoid these easily, using your dodge (RB) to help evade them if you’re struggling.
Next, The Nameless One will stand in one place and begin swinging its staff around its head. At this point, dash in with a roll or Boots of Swiftness and activate your Death Cap Mushroom. You can even use the Fireworks Arrow after this to deal massive damage. If not, get up close and get a few hits in.
When The Nameless One is swinging its staff, it’s about to summon in skeletons. Use normal ranged attacks to break their shields, then run about to group them all together and use the Fireworks Arrow to wipe them out in one hit.
Finally, The Nameless One can summon multiple versions of itself that will circle you and throw fireballs at you at the same time. As soon as you spot them circling you, be ready to use your Boots of Swiftness again to make a quick escape, and use your dodge to get out of the way of any incoming attacks.
After this, The Nameless One will go back to flinging fireballs and summoning skeletons before summoning multiple versions of itself again. Rinse and repeat our method listed out above.
And just like that, The Nameless One has been defeated. Congratulations, now you’re free to march forward on your quest to stop the Arch-Illager in Minecraft Dungeons. If you’re looking for more on the game, check out our section below. For everything else, be sure to search for Twinfinite.
